A loan helped to buy a water tank he'll use to harvest rain water that normally goes to waste during rainy seasons.


Elias's story

Elias is a 50-year-old man living in Eldoret, Kenya. He's a mixed dairy and crop farmer with many years of experience. Farming has turned his life around.

The major impediment to development of smallholder farms in Kenya is lack of short-term credit. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, thereby guaranteeing their survival.

Elias is seeking this loan to buy a water tank he'll use to harvest rain water that normally goes to waste during rainy seasons. With the loan, he'll be able to irrigate his farm, increasing his crop productivity. Be inspired to support Elias with a loan today.
